PM warns Putin in Ukraine showdown Sonia Elks, Francis Elliott in Brisbane, Bernard Lagan in Sydney Last updated at 10:58AM, November 15 2014 David Cameron warned Vladimir Putin that Russia faces increasing isolation and further sanctions if it continues to destabilise Ukraine by intervening in the crisis. The Prime Minister said that Moscow faces a “fork in the road” over its relations with the world if it continues to flout an agreement to remove its troops from Ukraine during a showdown with his Russian counterpart on the sidelines of a tense G20 summit in Brisbane. He said that world leaders are ready to introduce more sanctions if Moscow does not respect the strained Minsk peace agreement in Ukraine, which has never been fully adhered to.

Can Think's electric car revolutionize the auto industry? - August 1, 2007 (Business 2.0 Magazine) -- Three pinstriped London investors stand outside an electric car factory in the green fields of the Norwegian countryside, waiting their turns to test-drive a stylish two-seater called the Think City. But first, Think CEO Jan-Olaf Willums takes the wheel. While the moneymen fiddle with their BlackBerrys, Willums, looking slightly rumpled like the academic he once was, turns the ignition, and the stub-nosed coupe silently rolls toward an open stretch of pavement.

Inflatable electric car can drive off cliffs It's hard to say what the most intriguing thing about XP Vehicles' inflatable car is. Maybe it's that the car can travel for up to 2,500 miles on a single electric charge (the distance across the US is roughly 3,000 miles). Or maybe it's the fact that you buy the car online, it gets shipped to you in two cardboard boxes, and the estimated assembly time is less than two hours. Perhaps it's that the car is made out of "airbags" - the same polymer materials used to cushion NASA's rovers when they landed on Mars. Then again, it could be the company's claim that you can drive the car off a cliff without serious injury, and that it will float in a flood or tsunami. Together, these features characterize the Whisper, XP Vehicles' solution to the oil crisis.
